WE’VE MOVED! The Sky Center Makes a New Home at Ortiz Middle School!
Local construction company Facility Build is hard at work to have The Sky Center’s doors open by the start of the school year 2017. The Santa Fe Public Schools continues its longstanding partnership with The Sky Center/New Mexico Suicide Intervention Project, offering space within school walls in kind for our free services to all youth in the SFPS community. Our family counseling services are available uninterrupted throughout the summer on-site at Ortiz Middle School. We can be found 4164 S. Meadows Road in Santa Fe. You can find our entrance and parking off of Jaguar Drive; we have a separate entrance left of the main school entrance. Our phone number remains the same: 473-6191. We are already looking forward to sharing our new space with the community during an Open House this fall – we promise to keep you updated!
Making a Profound Impact: Proceeds from 2nd Annual Nate Blaser Golf Benefit Supports The Sky Center in a Time of Positive Transition
On June 9, 2017, Jill Benjamin Blankenship, mother of Nate Blaser, and the Santa Fe Association of Realtors, held the Second Annual Nate Blaser Golf Benefit and raised upwards of $27,000 to benefit our prevention programming. Over 60 golfers gathered on a sun-filled afternoon to make a difference in the lives of New Mexico youth vulnerable to suicide. Given that The Sky Center is under construction at Ortiz Middle School, we are facing new and unique budgetary challenges. This event has made a huge difference in our ability to meet these challenges and keep our doors wide open and our barriers to service at zero. AN ENORMOUS THANK YOU to all those who participated during the golf benefit, donors, Jill Benjamin Blankenship and SFAR!
